Undue influence is a cause of action used to invalidate a trust based on a third party taking some wrongful, illegal, or fraudulent action to deprive the grantor of the trust of his or her free will, thereby subverting his or her actual wishes. Undue influence is much easier to prove if the alleged wrongdoer was a trusted fiduciary of the grantor of the trust.

Like undue influence, lack of testamentary capacity is a basis for invalidating a trust. In order for a trust to be valid, the grantor of the trust must understand who his or her immediate family are, understand the property he or she owns, and understand his or her actions in creating the trust to dispose of the property. This is called testamentary capacity.
